“I am pleased to announce a further strengthening of both the team at AHL and the Management Committee, with the appointment of Douglas Greenig as Chief Risk Officer. Doug’s substantial trading and risk management experience across a wide range of products and markets, both systematic and discretionary, makes him an invaluable addition.

Meanwhile, Matthew Sargaison’s new role as Chief Investment Officer will allow him to apply the experience he has gained over the past three years as CRO more directly to client trading. I look forward to working with both Doug and Matthew in their new roles. ”

Doug Greenig has a Ph.D in Mathematics from the University of California, Berkeley and a degree in economics from Princeton University. He is a Fellow of New York University’s Courant Institute, where he taught risk management and econometrics.
